LAN tester is a device which helps to observe the connectivity and strength of a particular type of cable or other wired assemblies. A LAN tester can determine IP addresses, identify the connected port, link connectivity and polarity. The LAN tester can also test fiber optics cable and can identify any breakage or incorrect connections in it. The LAN tester is also useful in analyzing the traffic of the network and also helps in tracking IP addresses. Thus the use of LAN tester is ideal for network administrators and technical service professionals. The rapid increase of devices used by consumers such as remote control cars, gaming equipment, and telecommunications systems is leading to more sale of cables for connectivity purpose, resulting in increased demand for cable tester in order to provide safe and quality connectivity, thereby bolstering the market growth for LAN tester market.
Increasing Demand for Fiber Optics Cable for High Speed Internet
The increasing demand for high-speed internet across the globe has created an upsurge in demand for fiber optic cabling. The increasing demand for fiber optic is not created only by the broadband providers but the demand is also created by the healthcare industry and aerospace verticals. Defense is also a major consumer of fiber optics across the globe. Moreover, the constant requirement for increased bandwidth for high internet speed is resulting in higher spending on fiber optics, resulting in increased demand for LAN tester for control and better testing of the services offered by network transporters to its subscribers. Additionally, it is also anticipated that the demand for LAN tester will high over the time period of 5 years owing to increased applications of coaxial cables including closed-circuit television, broadband Ethernet, undersea cable systems, commercial radio communications and home video equipment.
